Successful Year? He scored 5 goals that season, was a peripheral player the whole year, and for most of the year struggled to get any production.

Linus had 4pts in first 4games that year including a 3pt game and nearly everybody thought it was off to the races. He proceeded to garner only 16pts over the next 40games before finishing strong with 7pts in last 8games in entirely meaningless games.

Not to mention a dismal GA record that year.

This was a one trick pony without many tricks.

You know as fans of the Oilers that were used to absolute dreck when so many welcome the *contribution* of a player like Linus Omark.
